    Reincarnation : Questions, Answers, Experiences

    I have never been a real believer in reincarnation. It simply did not seem to fit in to my logic at all....till now.
    I don't know how to take this. You see someone and you know them. You've never met them, no association at all, but the knowledge is palpable. This is recent - over the past week.
    What makes matters worse is I can't contact this person as they are on the other side of the world and I only saw them through television. Yet i know them as sure as I'm breathing. Now just exactly what are you supposed to do with this? How can I possible confirm this to any degree?

    I all my years on this planet, I have never experienced anything this real. Like you see 2 people when you see that individual. The one your eyes see and the one your soul sees. Now for a newbie at this I don't really know what I've got or what to do with it. Any ideas here? And no, they don't remind me of anyone I know?

    Reincarnation can be tough one to get your mind around. It took me a while before I could, and I needed some 'dramatic' experiences to convince me.

    What you're describing could indeed be a case of recognition from a past life.

    "Listen to your heart" is the best advice I can give in these circumstances: if it feels right that this is a past life connection, it may indeed be the case. Sometimes, you 'just know', and that seems to be your experience here.

    This can be an exciting beginning of a new road of discovery. Embrace it!

    Thank you Garuda, This has been tough to deal with. This great saddness is connected to it, and I know there will never be a crossing of paths.
    I had one other experience when young. This person was about 10yrs older and an instructor. We could not help being around each other and thankfully I was an old soul and could process this. We dated till I graduated from college when he suddenly had his head turned by someone else. He married her. I cautioned his father that this would be a disaster and indeed the woman left him after 4 years and it almost broke his spirit.
    By then I was married and settled. But in 2004 I learned he was near death from cancer and I dashed to his hospital bed. We had an hour together before the pain was so bad he had to take medication that knocked him out. But it was clear that he regretted his decision. When I attended his funeral which was Catholic, the coffin is placed in the center aisle. Everyone sat up to the front leaving the coffin quite alone. I sat near the coffin alone with him and escorted him out. It was the only thing I could do for him in this life.

    For a year there were bangs in the middle of the night in my attic over my head. I tried to figure out what it was that was causing it but there was nothing to drop and bounce as this did. One day it quieted down, but a woman I knew said she had a message for me. "He said, mind over matter dear, mind over matter" and she went on to describe him with a black dog wearing a red collar sitting in a sports car like a Mustang. She did not know, but he loved his old Mustang.
    I called his son and he was stunned to learn that. He said the dog was Jacko, their black lab and that he had Jacko's red collar and tags in his desk drawer still. He was a much loved dog they had when his son was a child. I got my confirmation.

    Long story short, I have found this other person now, but circumstances will never allow a meeting. Sometimes I wished I had never found him, because it was an extremely close relationship in the past and now I feel like I'm in a cage and can't reach through the bars to grasp what I know was mine. It's been like a punch in the gut.

    Thanks for the advice Garuda. I did and do indeed listen to my heart and it is struggling to accept this particular reality with dificulty.

    That "punch in the gut"-feeling often indicates the person was a significant other in a past life. It could be a partner, a sibling, some other relative, a friend, a mentor, a pupil,... you get the picture.

    There are visualisations / exercises to release the 'attachment' to a significant other. One that is commonly used is the 'cord cutting' exercise. I can send you the text, if you're interested.

    It helps to restore a sense of equanimity.

    My father believed in reincarnation but as a young man I wasn't convinced of it. After many years of study and considering the information available, I have just in the past few years concluded that it is most likely real.
    There's something happening here. What it is ain't exactly clear.

    Garuda, I pm'd you. Somethings are best kept there. But there are times today I have been dizzy, and felt like I was being pulled away from where I am in this place. I do not tend to get emotional easily anymore and am a practical person, but this has been like being hit headon at high speed. It isn't something I can dismiss and just say oh well, not this lifetime.
    And I am not prone to flights of fancy. So I am stuck trying to figure this out without any ability to speak to this person. Really really vexing.

    It is like Deju Vu all over again!........Sorry couldn't resist.

    I read once that all dreams are memories of past lives. It is believed that everything we have experienced in our past lives is stored away in our genes. Much as a bird knows to fly south or a squirrel knows to store food for winter. I have had occasions when I recognized a place that I had never been before. Or something happened that stopped me in my tracks, thinking that I had done that exact same thing once before. I believe we are all, 'Old Souls.'

    I often wonder if this phenomena is what we experience when we "bump" against one of our alternate realities. Perhaps there are enough of our other selves doing the exact same thing or thinking the exact same thing at the exact same moment and this creates a balance that opens our senses to each other for a brief period of time. Yeah, sometimes I can get kinda' scary.
    This isn't poetry, this is the language of reality.

    I've stumbled across more information that confirmed something I saw in my dream. Had no idea this information was out there but I seem to be seeing it or anticipating it before I get confirmation. As a newcomer to this phenomenon I find it very exciting as I never believed this possible.
    I had been a total skeptic, but I am beginning to think I am wrong and am very curious as to what else I can learn and have corroborated independently after the fact.
    It's just fascinating and a little scarey. But it also makes me a bit sad as I miss this person now.

    I have what seem to be, memories of two past deaths. In one of them, I am standing in front of a deep trench, beyond which is a weathered, wooden fence. I heard a loud "crack" and then I felt a pressure in my lower back. I then fell into the trench and as I am falling, everything goes dark. I think I was in a concentration camp.

    Even before I remembered this, I always loved the music and clothes from the late 1930s and early 1940s. My favorite song is Bei Mir Bist Du Schon. I grew up watching the Andrew Sisters in the Abbott and Costello movies and I always wanted to learn to dance like they did. In 2000, I did and for many years, I went out several times a week to swing dance events and classes. This past Sunday, I went to a "Vintage Subway Swing and Balboa" party. Vintage subway cars were being run along the "F" train line, bands played music from the '20s through the '50s, and people came and danced in their finest vintage and retro outfits. I rode the trains, took pictures, talked with old friends, listened to the music, and watched others dance (my dancing days were over years ago).

    I realized on my way home, that this just wasn't "me" any more. I had done what I had always wanted to do, it was now in my past. I have to wonder how long I had wanted to dance like this. Was this a desire from that past life that I needed to work out? Did I need to stop grieving over something I missed way back when? I think that is one of the reasons for reincarnation. I got the opportunity to do something I wanted to do in the past but, for one reason or another, never compleated it. Now I have so now I can move on.
